OSAAT 'New Baby'

It is my first week as official DT at One Stitch at a Time! I feel very honoured to be asked to join their team after being their Guest designer a few weeks ago-they are a great team!
The theme this week is 'New Baby' and I was given the image 'Take me home' by Barbara Jensen at Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps.
I would love for some of you to join in this week-we always have great prizes :-)
For this project I used Design papers from my stash, Promarkers, Nesties, Baby self adhesive Ribbon, Buttons, Gems, and a 'cute' sticker.
I started to colour the digi first, and I coloured him with my promarkers and created noticeable stripes by colouring over the line a few times to suggest shaggy dog hair and I am really pleased with the result. I then mounted this onto some pretty striped paper. Next I covered the card blank with powder blue paper and then chose where to place the image. I then added a row of square blue gems on one side, then ribbon on the opposite side. Next I placed three buttons which complimented the colour scheme and lastly added a nestie cut shape of powder blue patterned paper to which I handwrote the sentiment 'Congratulations on your new arrival' and a little sticker saying 'Cute'.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
CRAFT Challenge 97: Animals/Pets
CES Challenges: Monochromatic
Lexis Creations: Monochromatic

  9. Welcome to the team Elaine. I have only been here for a few weeks myself so still getting used to things but everyone is really nice and helpful.

    Love the dog image you chose for this card and the textured effect you gave to the dog. I tend to use a blender pen and create lots of dots over my colour but the way you did it is great for a long haired effect.

    Love Mandy xxx
